>> the back of the home is severely damaged. crews will have to excavate the back of the home to find the source of the fire. no one was hurt. marla, a man remains hospitalized this morning after being shot overnight. now police are searching for whoever pulled the trigger at 11:00 last night on ezie street. the victim is expected to survive. so far, nobody is under arrest. police right now have not released the description of any possible suspects. the body of a second fisherman missing since sunday has been found on a beach north of pigeon point. the man was one of four friends from san francisco on a boat that capsized near half moon bay. two of the four were wearing life jackets. those two survived and swam to shore for help. the body of the first missing man washed ashore on monday.
the two men who died were not wearing life jackets. demanding justice. protesters taking over the city council meeting in oakland last night demanding more information on a deadly police shooting that happened five months ago. the family and about 75 supporters of 18-year-old alan bluford packed the chambers for two hours. the family was given a copy of the police report. something they have been asking the police for since the shooting happened. bluford was shot and killed back in may after police say he tried to run away. police said he was killed in an exchange of gunfire that injured the police officer. they later changed the story and the gun believed to be bluford's believed to be recovered from the scene was not. the district attorney and oakland police are still investigating the shooting.
the protest comes as a federal report comes to light accusing oakland police of being too quick to pull the trigger. a court-appointed monitor says officers sometimes shoot at suspects even though they may not face immediate danger. the monitor says officers may be quote, hypersensitive to the dangers of their job. the detectives seem to be predisposed of the shooting is justified. the officer-involved shootings appear to be cases that have the most deficiencies. and in response to the report, the head of the officers union tells "the chronicle" our officers see more violence in a shift than many officers see in an entire year. there is a plan to outsource police. a move that will be left up to voters in milpitas. at the packed meeting, council
deciding if voters decide if they should contract out with the sheriff's office. the city council will now vote on an official resolution at the next meeting to put this plan on the ballot. the oakland a's are red hot. they beat the texas rangers and they have one game to go. the division title is up for grabs in the last game of the regular season. nbc bay area's christie smith is live at the coliseum where a sellout crowd is gathering for the first pitch. >> reporter: you are hearing a lot of "let's go oakland." we are 90 minutes from game town. everyone hoping for the sweep. people were lined up at the gate at 8:00 trying to get in. tickets for today's game are gone. they are available for other games.
this morning, fans feeling great about the a's team heading into the final game with the rangers. the a's needed a win to grab that first playoff berth since 2006. they did that monday. it will hold more value because of the addition of the second wild card. this excitement has the coliseum absolutely jam packed. after last night's win, 10,000 tickets sold immediately for today's game. the first fan in line that i spoke with couldn't score one, but he's not giving up. >> not for today's game, but the division. that's what we're here for this morning. i'll be here in spirit. >> reporter: what will you do? >> get tickets or see if my buddies get tickets. major disappointment. i'll get in one way or the other. >> oakland is working hard. if they do well, it will bring in more revenue for oakland. it's a great thing. >> reporter: last night, the a's
took it 3-1 setting up the showdown for the american league west. in the past, attendance is not what they want. 31,000 fans last night. the director of ticket sales told us was still up for grabs. >> still a wild card game which could happen on friday. we are selling division series tickets that are home game one or home game two or home game three. depending on which game you buy, when we put dates and times on the tickets and you will know which game to come to. >> reporter: those division champions goes to the division series. that is the best of five. the loser plays a wild card game friday. which ever team does not win the american league east. for today, though, a lot of fans say they are going to do whatever they can to try to somehow come up on a ticket. if not, it looks to me like a lot of them are just saying we will tailgate and have fun and support the team from the parking lot. reporting live in oakland,
christie smith, nbc bay area news. >> get a dog and a brew and get inside. the chronicle reporting that the a's and the city are close to a five-year extension on the coliseum lease. it is well known that the owner has said he wants to move the team to san jose. so far, major league baseball has not decided whether or not to take san jose's territory rights away from the giants. now according to the report, the a's would face a $50 million fine if they decide to leave the coliseum before the new lease extension is up. go a's. the fans and team getting treated to a nice day out there. >> i can feel the fever. >> it is nice to be able to concentrate on the a's. we are the proud home of the giants. we want nothing more than a giants/a's bay bridge world series. we are all about that. you know what? everybody out there, you notice, had the short sleeves and tank tops on. perfect weather for that. a beautiful shot of the
overlook. the low clouds are keeping up the coastline. that will cool us off. 84 degrees in livermore right now. down from the 90s this time yesterday. 71 in san francisco. temperatures will be in the upper 90s in some cities. when you talk about that being refreshing. we are out of the triple digits finally. 84 in livermore. 79 in pleasanton. 77 degrees at 2:00 p.m. hopefully holding on to a pretty strong lead at that time. you can catch all of the action on cokocomcast sportsnet bay ar. it starts at 12:35. go a's. i said it. >> we are all sending out good vibrations. you can do both sides. >> i hope it wasn't recorded. >> it is all good. thank you. we'll check back in with you. still ahead at 11:00, mitt romney and president obama meet face-to-face for the first time in five years. what's at stake for the candidates heading into the

>> reporter: president obama on the right and mitt romney on the left. questions about taxes and health care. the bar is high for the president and predicts romney's aggressiveness is not a fun balance. >> he has the facts. he drills you. he is tenacious. that is the difference between four years ago and this time. >> reporter: the bottom line, democrats say, is who has specifics. >> the american people at home are looking for details. i think you will see president obama continue to do that. >> reporter: nbc's latest poll puts the president three points ahead with romney gaining ground. >> voters are less likely to be hispanic and percentage of people 18 to 29-year-olds dropped. as a consequence of the po poll being slightly older, it
moves to mitt romney. >> reporter: more interesting, the battle ground states. romney closing the gap in virginia and florida, but not ohio where the president is maintaining a strong lead into the debate. and despite what we found in the nbc poll, 4 in 10 americans are interested in the debates, but 60% are going to watch. tracie potts, nbc news. >> you can watch the debate at 6:00 here on the nbc bay area. and meg whitman says turning hp around will take longer than expected. does she have time, scott? >> she will. the board will give her the time she needs despite she gave us bad news.
whitman seen here in file video at the analyst meeting and said the turn around would take at least until the year 2014 or 2015. the company lowering its financial forecasts as well. in the case of enterprise services, that is where it deal was businesses, business may be off 13% and it will cut the number of printers it makes. something that apple does all the time. shares in hp are down 11% this morning. we care because this is a big company in silicon valley. thanks, scott. there will be tons of action on the san francisco waterfront this week. it is the start of fleet week, but today also marks the start of qualifying races in round two of the america's cup. bob redell is live in san francisco with more for us. bob, good morning. looking good in the shades. >> reporter: well, i need them out here.
it's a hot one out here today. good morning, marla. we're inside oracle team usa tent at pier 32. these are wing sails. they are still in here. just around 70 feet long. it will be 70 feet tall once they are put up on top of the catamarans. they will do the first day of competition for the america's cup world series. john races here and is one of the skippers. good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: you were out yesterday for the practice. what were the conditions like? >> obviously san fran is in a heat wave at the moment. >> reporter: that is not always ideal for sailing? >> no. the winds tend to lift when it is this hot in the city. yesterday we were out on the big
boat. >> reporter: you are competing in the america's cup next summer. this is the 45 right now. these have a top speed of 30 knots. how fast can you get them? >> we will be up there in the 30s. maybe a bit more. we have a good breeze forecast today. unfortunately for everyone, the heat is coming to a bit of an end. it will start cooling again. >> reporter: you are the bowman on the boat. i think people will be surprised when you are doing this, your heart rate can get as high as 180. what makes it so physical? >> oh, these little boats are powerful. the loads on the sails are up there. we're trying to do everything as fast as we can. you know, there's a lot of winding on the winchels. it is always an unstable
platform. you are always trying to balance. trying to stay on your feet can be hard. >> reporter: best of luck. marla, check out the guns he has there. >> i asked him about that. >> reporter: 4:05 on the matches. i'm sure you did. 11 boats and eight teams on the bay. through saturday is the competition times is 4:00 through 8:00. they are staggering them because of fleet week and all of the other activities. reporting live here at pier 30-32, bob redell. >> bob redell knows you well. >> let's switch assignments, bob. >> checking out the guns. let's go over to christina. >> it is funny he knew that. >> he knows me well. how is the weather? >> i was noticing bob redell's
guns myself. temperatures are running warm. he was talking about how hot it was in san francisco. yesterday, they hit 94 degrees. we will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler. i want to start with live pictures captured by our chopper overhead as all that action takes to the bay. of course, nbc bay area, your proud home of the america's cup. if you can't make it to san francisco, as it will be jam packed, we will have the live action here on nbc bay area. we saw the fleet week vessels riding in as well. a beautiful day. 90 degrees in concord. 10 degrees cooler from yesterday. this is the reason why. live satellite imagery shows you the marine layer. it is moving back into southern california. for us, we are getting the offshore flow. let's take it to the futurecast. 10:00 p.m. tonight, the fog returns to the north bay. when we meet back here tomorrow at 11:00, we are still talking
about mostly cloudy conditions. the real reason for the cooldown is the area of low pressure that is riding up from the south. this will drop the temperatures from 20 to 25 degrees from today's high. i'm not talking about yesterday where we smashed temperature records across the bay area. we will see a return of the dense fog and drizzle friday into saturday. we get active sunday, monday and tuesday with substantial rain chances. monday and tuesday look to be the best. the north bay for monday. tuesday and wednesday, showers across the greater bay area after the heat wave. major changes ahead. sharp turns. maybe jon kelley can show us the beaches. we like your guns as well, jon. >> these are padded suits. coming up at 11:00, you're out of there. why that umpire's call was music to one major leaguer's ears. and the birthday suit ban. it is a plan that could penalize
welcome back. strange, but true. guess what? wearing your birthday suit could one day be a crime. at least in san francisco. >> banning nudity in plazas and streets and sidewalks and public transportation. parades, including the beta breakers run would be exempt. if it becomes law, offending nudists would be slapped with a $100 fine for the first offense and $200 for the second and $500 for the third. right now, state law does not ban public nudity. it does ban lewd public behavior. >> the silver lining, it is okay
two at-bats in seven years. it was a second chance for a baseball player injured in his one and only at bat. >> the story after a decade, adam greenberg back in the big leagues. he got hit in the head with the cubs on the first pitch that he saw. a 9-mile-an-hour fastball. it derailed his career. never got back on track. he got back to the major leagues. the marlins signed him to a one-day contract. he got a one-at bat. campaign by fans. they locked him in. he locked in his sights. that was strike two. he actually struck out, but it was a beautiful thing. >> we leave you with the oakland
